About Sue Willis

My husband and I moved to Cornwall in 1999 and have been renting Mount Earl as a holiday let since 2001.

We enjoy an outdoor lifestyle on the beautiful Lizard peninsula. We make the most of the wild rugged costal path walks..the lovely unspoilt beaches. Mike particularly enjoys exploring the remote coves on his Kayak and the occasional fishing trip.

We have many guests returning to Mount Earl and we have made lots of good friends over the years.

Sue Willis purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Sue Willis chose Lizard Peninsula

We immediately fell in love with the cottage and its location in an area of outstanding natural beauty close to the costal path and sea.

What makes this cottage unique

Mount Earl is situated a quarter of a mile from the nearest public lane, offering a high degree of privacy and seclusion.Set within 32 acres of private woodland/heath nature lovers can enjoy the unusual flora and fauna.

Recently, the woodland has revealed the ruins of an ancient mill close to the pretty Downas stream.It is only a 20 minute rugged walk to an unspoilt secluded cove where seals and basking sharks have been spotted. The south west coast path is close by, incorporating the breathtaking vantage point of Black Head and far reaching views towards England's most southerly point.

The pretty fishing village of Coverack is approx. 2 miles away, where there is a lovely sandy beach, village shops, cafes and pub serving local seafood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Mount Earl in October was just wonderful, but much to short......the house , the garden and the surrounding landscape are , what we call in Germany wild-romantic and far from hectic and bustle, exactly my taste.....This time we explored some more of the area with Falmouth as my personal favourite.

There would be a lot more to tell about, but I would just like to strongly recommend a stay at Mount Earl !!!

We hope to come back for another, hopefully longer stay.

Thanks Sue & Mike

We spent a wonderful week at Mount Earl. Mike&Sue are very friendly and helpful. They welcomed us with cream tea and good Cornish beer. The big garden was fun for the children. We can highly recommend this cottage to everyone! It is really quiet, the cottage is well-equipped and surrounded by such a beautiful nature. Plus, it is just a short way to see many beautiful spots of Cornwall!!!

It was a really relaxing week in Mount Earl. Located perfectly for short and long walks along the Cost
